A prostitution sting in North Sacramento leads to the arrest of several dozen people in North Sacramento. The undercover operation focused on a number of areas along Watt Avenue:
"It was in response to a lot of the area businesses who were complaining about quality of life issues," said Sergeant Lisa Bowman.
She said a total of 38 people were arrested.
"Not just for female prostitutes actually engaging in prostitution actvity, but males, what is commonly referred to as 'Johns'" added Bowman.
16 men, in fact, were picked up for prostitution-related offenses along with 11 women and two minors. Nine others were arrested on non-related issues.
Those arrested range in age from 16 to 66.
